Sony PRS-350 $69 at sony store today

I also posted this in the Deals section, but for those of us who care, I noticed today that the refurbished PRS-350 is $69 again on the sony store site. Prob. US only, sorry. I picked up 2, one for my daughter and a spare for me!

I found 3 at my local Best Buy for $59, it might be worth it if you are in a Best Buy to see if they still have any! These were brand new units, on clearance.

Highly recommended!

I already had a T1, purchased last year, but wanted something smaller to put in my pocket. The T1 is just a little too large for that.

Got a 350 for myself for Christmas and it's excellent. Would buy again.

I haven't been able to find any locally. My local Radioshack proudly pulled out some PRS-300's and couldn't understand why I wasn't enthused.

I found mine on E-bay for $69.99, which included shipping. It's probably refurbished, but I'm very happy with it anyway.

At this price, I wanted to get one. I looked on ebay as well, but they seem to be going for more than the $69 and at least if I buy it from Sony and it has problems, they'll replace it. Also might have more battery life. As I said, I got a spare, as I love the small portability of this reader and don't care about wifi on it.

Unfortunately it must be only in areas like your that have several units left. My Bestbuy would not match that price.(even when I refered them to your price. They only had one unit left. Most bestbuys in my area and elsewhere are sold out or have 1 or 2 left.


I think $69.99 for a refurbished is the best many of you are going to do right now. I bought a refurbished and it was exactly like new. Flawless. You cant go wrong. Go for it if you want one because this is the first time in months they put them onsale.

Thanks for the heads up mbelec. I decided to pick up a spare myself. I carry a silver on the train everyday and my wife has a pink 350 also. I figure for the price, and the fact that Sony will more than likely never make a 5" again, a spare is probably warranted.

Ok I really shouldn't read this site! lol

I just ordered me a spare 350. At least they are different colors. The one I have right now is the pink one.

I ordered one...I have a 650 that I love, but sometimes a smaller format would be so much more convenient. When Sony had them on sale a few months ago I was tempted, but didn't do it. I've since regretted not getting one, so no way was I passing up this deal a second time! I also like the 650/350 interface better than any of the current readers on the market, so if something should happen to my 650, it'll be nice to have a backup.
